The Myth Of The Birth Of The Sunflower
«Still the lov'd object the fond leafs pursue, still move their root, the moving Sun to view» (from Book IV of Ovid's Metamorphoses).
Sunflower cultivation is widespread throughout Italy thanks to its suitable climatic conditions. The beneficial properties of its seeds and oil have been known since Roman times. In Book IV of The Metamorphoses, the poet Ovid tells us the legend of the birth of this simple and beautiful flower that always looks at the sun.
He tells us about Clytie, a nymph in love with Helios, god of the Sun. Every day she tried to see him and followed him with her eyes, while he was driving his chariot of fire. Helios eventually succumbed to the girl but then fell in love with Leucothoe and abandoned Clytie.
The girl was angered and told Leucothoe's father about the affair. The father had her daughter put to death for having been defiled. Helios hated Clytie for that so she cried for nine days and nine nights, feeding only on dew and tears, lying on the bare earth of a field and staring at the sky always looking for the face of Helios.
The nymph's body stiffened and turned into a thin but strong stem, her feet stuck in the ground and her hair turned yellow.
The pity of the gods transformed Clytie into a beautiful flower, the sunflower, which turns on itself following the movement of the sun. Even today the nymph continues to look with her gaze for her love crossing the sky.
